CINCINNATI (AP) — Media company E.W. Scripps Co. said Friday it is holding live telethons at all nine of its ABC and NBC stations to raise aid for victims of the Haiti earthquake.

The telethons will be held on Tuesday evening. Depending on the market, they will begin in late afternoon and air for about 3 hours.

The company said the money raised will support the areas that the American Red Cross has identified as Haitians’ greatest needs: food, water, temporary shelter, medical services and emotional support.
